He's NINE ever think maybe he didnt really understand what he was doing?



At nine years old, the kid is either retarded and doesn't know any better, or he's a cruel kid. Chances are the latter and I'm not surprised.

Where did you get your medical degree to make this diagnosis?Also when did you meet with the child to diagnose him as eithre retarded or cruel? I just want to know so that if my son ever has problems I can come to you for advice.Just in case you werent sure this is sarcasm.

The point remains.

In any event, I'd like to point out that from my experience with mentally handicapped children in this age range, this behavior would not be a plausible expectation of their limited mental development. If a child doesn't know its unkind to kill cats, he or she probably won't make the connection between certain liquids and their combustability. That isn't to say that mentally handicapped can't and don't accidently kill animals - - I had a boy in art class once who killed a pet hamster by tossing it up in the air so it hit the ceiling. He was mimicing something his dad does with baby brother . . . only dad doesn't toss as hard or nearly as high. It's those subtle misunderstandings of mechanics that usually does the class pet in, frankly. But this . . . I think its too premeditated and complex for someone who is even EMH or DEMH in at about this age.



The hamster story is sad! I totally agree though.

The point, from earlier, was that the kid is old enough to know that what he was doing was wrong. And I believe that when he said "retarded", he was encompassing psychological conditions.

A group of kids poured lighter fluid on it, and proceeded to light it on fire.



I doubt it was just coincidence.

Using the term "retarded" is about as PC as using the "N" word. Just a little FYI. It's pretty much offensive, anyway you look at it.

The kid needs help. Now, before he gets any worse. Obviously he is not being taught right from wrong or compassion for others in the home, so he needs proper care and help and presumably the parents need it as well. That's the only way. Locking him up won't help.

Maybe not locking up, but he certainly needs some form of time out.

This boy needs serious therapy, not "time out". He might be sent to a group home but I'm not sure if that's good or bad.

god, that's awful!! How can a little kid do that?



He'll feel terrible when he's 22 years old. Or he'll be a gun nut...



I knew a kid in elemetary school who would take firecrackers and cats and...well...

and he was in 2nd grade. It made my sister cry to hear what he'd do to cats.
